I love webinars! This has to be one of the best innovations that technology has brought to genealogy. I didn’t really get into podcasts. I know a lot of people love them, but for some reason, I just never took the time to get there.
But webinars are different for me. My first exposure to webinars was through Ancestry.com. I enjoyed several, but for some time it seemed that they had gotten few and far between. I think that Ancestry is focusing more on facebook and other methods of communication with their target audience — and they definitely seem more geared to beginners.
So when I found Legacy webinars I was very happy. I can’t believe that they provide so many wonderful topics, so much valuable information, and it’s free!
I took my first Legacy webinar March 30: Digital Writing Tools for Genealogists, with Lisa Alzo. It was amazing; she was amazing; there was a whole world out there that I hadn’t known about — and it was free!
These Legacy webinars are available almost weekly — if you haven’t looked into these, make sure you do. They are definitely a find for anyone, but especially if you are Surviving in the Recession.
